We had the mussels and fish. Be ready for a huge bowl of mussels, although the meat was a little small. The fish was done well, but remember the French serve the fish with the bone in for flavor. The prices were reasonable. The service was extremely slow.

Great area to sit on the patio and people watch. Free wifi. Good service. I had the pizza and wine, and it was a very large dish that was super tasty.

Visited this restaurant last night. Service not good at all. Waited 1 hour 20 mins for a starter of grilled peppers. When main course came it was bland and basic. Asked for water many times, we never received any. This restaurant will continue to get custom as tourists will get tired and pick a restaurant, however the service and food... More

Had dinner here, because it looked quite nice. We were seated at a small unstable table. Ordered the sea bass and shrimp. Those were pretty good, but the accompanying dishes were quite standard. Nothing very special. Price/quality thus wasn't very good.

The staff is rude, the food is less than average. The only nice thing about this restaurant is the location. This is a restaurant that targets tourists with bad food. Keep walking and you will encounter much better restaurants. As you walk by they usher you into a table before you can really decide whether or not you want to... More

It's possible that every restaurant in NIce has pizza on their menu and the pizzas we had at Atmosphere Cafe were as tasty as any I've ever had. I ordered the Milanaise while my wife had the Napolitaine and both were quite to our liking. We had ordered a 50 cl of red Tasquier to accompany our meal and Carole,... More
